Michael is Visiting Assistant Professor in Undergraduate Architecture at Pratt Institute, where he is coordinator and instructor of Degree Project. His research and design interest is machinic architecture, i.e. - architectural design strategies explicitly derived from the machinic processing of information.

Left brain-wise, he is a graduate of the California Institute of Technology and Columbia University, where he conducted research on plasma physics; right brain-wise, he is a graduate of The Cooper Union and Princeton University, where he is completing a dissertation on the interplay between science and architecture in the early works of R. Buckminster Fuller.

Michael founded his studio, NOF machinic architecture, in Hoboken, New Jersey in 2012, cofounded SITREP.at (with Pratt faculty Philippe Baumann) in 2013, and cofounded Airy Mobile Technologies Inc. in 2016.
